Despite reports that the NFL will not let Bears receiver Brandon Marshall on the field wearing green shoes against the Giants Thursday night, Pro Football Talk reports a league official said Marshall will be allowed to play in the shoes, but will be fined later.

Marshall, who is wearing green shoes in honor of Mental Health Awareness Week, said he planned to pay the fine and match it with a donation to a charity.

There is league precedent for allowing non-conforming shoes on the field. Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch was fined $5,250 for wearing green shoes, while his teammates wore grey shoes, in Week Four.
